Friends of the Marin County Free Library

We are a nonprofit 501(c)3 group of volunteers dedicated to making our library system and its programs the best they can be. Anyone who enjoys the pleasure of a good book or the myriad of benefits and services of the library should be a friend. Our non-profit tax ID is 23-7098721.


December News/Specials

We’ve decked the halls, and brought out the Christmas/Hanukkah books. There are gift options all over the store for all ages, and Science Fiction is 50% off. There may be more discounts popping up, so visit often.

A GREAT option is a gift card, so recipients can select their own items. It’s also a wonderful way to introduce others to the fun of secondhand buying—it’s become a “thing” recently; it’s economical AND relaxing!

Donations Info

We are always in need of gently-used materials to keep our selection fresh. However, we ask that you check the Donations Guidelines before packing your donation. We’re buried under an avalanche of Mystery hardcover books, so we will not be accepting hardcover Mystery/Thrillers for the month of December. We’ll begin accepting again beginning Tuesday, January 4.

Make a difference.. Shop at smile.amazon.com/ch/23-7098721 and AmazonSmile will donate to Friends of the Marin County Free Library, at no cost to you.
